Daytime Fall Smokey Eye ~Following Tori Sterling's Tutorial


This is me following her tutorial using the shadows I have. I'm going to describe the colors she is using so you can find duplicates in the eyeshadows you already own. You don't need to buy the same palette as her.

This is my youtube video copying this look, and showing how I got it. It's amazing to see the transformation from how I look at the beginning with no makeup on to the end.

1. She used Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette in the color Puree in her crease. This is a medium caramel brown with warm undertones and a matte finish.

2. Next, she used Summer Yum on the upper 1/2 of her lid. This is a medium-dark, red-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish.

3. Peach Pit on the lid. This is a dark, reddish brown with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer finish.

4. Tempting on the upper lash line. This color is a blackened brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen.

5. Summer Yum on lower lash line

6. Clean brush, blend out lower lash line.

7. Peach Pit lower lash line.

8. Golden highlight on the tear duct and under brow.

9. Mascara

10. She wore bronzer, highlight, and a lip gloss to complete this look.

Duping Too Faced Just Peachy Palette ~Get Ready With Me!



For this look I copied what Emilynoel83 did. I don't have the same products she was reviewing, so I used makeup I already own. So get out your peachy, oranges, browns, and red violets and let's copy her look! This blog post helped me with finding eyeshadows to dupe the palette: http://www.temptalia.com/too-faced-just-peachy-mattes-velvet-matte-eyeshadow-palette-review-photos-swatches/.



1. Face Primer

2. Foundation

3. Concealer

4. Powder

5. Bronzer

6. Peach Blush

7. Highlighter

8. Setting Spray

9. Nude Matte Lip, light nude in center of bottom lip. I used Wet 'n Wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit in 921B Nudist Peach and then in the center of the bottom lip I used Maybelline Color Sensational Matte Lipstick in 915 Blushing Beige.

10. Eyebrows

11. Eyeshadow Primer

12. Too Faced Just Peachy Velvet Matte Eye Shadow Palette in Peach Tea, crease. I used Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette in Peanut Butter. Light-medium orange/brown matte color.

13. She used Peach Butter and a little dab of Just Peachy under her brow. I used a good under brow color for me which is a really, really light off white color. Her colors were a light beige mixed with a  tiny bit of peach.

14. Peach Punch, center of the lid. This is a vibrant medium-dark pink-coral with warm undertones. I had to try different shadows to find this color. I could have mixed a pink with an orange. I didn't think about it when I was doing this look. But I think my eye look still ended up looking good even though it wasn't quite the same color as she used.

15. Just Peachy, inner 1/3 of the lid. This is a bright medium coral-orange. I used Milani Bella Eye Shadow in Mandarin.

16. Peach Sangria, outer 1/3 of lid and a little bit in the outer crease. I used Anastasia of Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow in Love Letter.

17. Blend everything out.

18. Peach Tart, outer crease and outer portion outside of the lid. This is a warm dark brown matte color. I used Shadow Box from the Kat Von D Monarch Palette.

19. Peach Cobbler on lower lash line. This is a medium-dark burnt orange matte color. I used Wrath from the Kat Von D Monarch Palette.

20. Peach Tart, outer edge of lower lash line.

21. Liquid Liner upper lash line. I used the dark brown one from Physician's Formula.

22. Lashes. My favorite mascara currently is L'Oreal Paradise.

Back to School Makeup Tutorial Using Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette


I found this really pretty back-to-school look by Aliza Schreiber. It is simple and using a palette that I own. Even if you aren't going back-to-school I love these simple tutorials that come out every year at this time. They are perfect if you want an easy, quick, everyday type of look to be polished wherever you maybe in the daytime (it doesn't need to be school).

These are the steps...

1. Face Primer

2. Foundation, with a sponge

3. Concealer, with a sponge

4. Eye Primer

5. Bronzer, cheeks, nose, neck

6. Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette in Mousse, crease, fluffy brush

7. Caramel, finger, lid, blend out with crease brush

8. Truffled, upper lash line, outer portion of lower lash line

9. Licorice, slight wing. I didn't make a wing. I just darkened the outer upper lash line.

10. Brows

11. Nude lip liner

12. Nude lip gloss

13. Don't forget mascara. I think she has extensions.
